@ jagjit! I am glad to know that there is a lawyer in our community. Perhaps we can ask your advice from time to time about legal matters. @moon. Thank you for opening this topic. We will be able to know what our friends are doing aside from myLot. Have a nice day to both of you.

I'm the same, I don't want to have to work with someone who just tells me what to do. Its a hassle having to be at a work place every day but when we work at home we don't have to go anywhere. We can enjoy our work online!

me too. working for someone else offline made me more sick than i already was. the pressure was to much. sometimes i still have nightmares about having to be somewhere and being late. i think working for other people help traumatize me. lol.

I am hoping to be able to make a living just online. I haven't been doing it for that long. Just a little over a year now. I can't say that I have made enough, to live off of. But, I am hoping the time comes when I can. I have put many hours into it. It seems like I learn something new everyday. Hopefully, in the next four years. I will be making a good living from the internet. Tat is my goal. I just have to see what happens. I have learned a lot from the many wonderful people here.

If I relied solely on the money I made online I would surely starve! There is a lot of competition out there are too many scams, which I seem to find. I used to be heavily into affiliate marketing, but I was spending too much time for too little gain. I respect and admire those that can earn a living online, I guess I am not cut out to be an internet marketer.

Yes its the same sad fact for me. I can't make enough yet to support even just for bills so I either need to get a good thing going here or eventually I"m going to need a job.

that would be a sad thing to have to give up and go back to work. maybe it wouldn't be giving up, though. maybe it would be doing what you had to do for a while, as you continue to build your online income.

I used to be working online for an Australian Company. And the income I get was almost the same as working offline. I used to be a system administrator and was also a social media marketing manager. Well, my scope of work was really wide. And sometimes, working 8 hours on line and 5 days a week is not enough. It was just like working in an office. The only difference is that I work online and all meetings with the boss and co-workers are through online collaboration.

It was stressful but I had fun. I wanted a kind of work that would make my mind work all the time. And some would think it is a lot of pressure, but the job was something new to me and I was so eager to learn new things. I took up Dentistry in College but never pursued a career on that. I really know nothing about computer that much except to do research and make use of Microsoft Word. And with that company, I have really learned a lot. Well, my working with them ended coz they were having trouble with thier finances. And I knew why. I just didn't want then to tell me that I should not be meddling with that area, but if they just realize their mistakes before I even joined them, then they would not have lost a lot of money. My pay was getting delayed. I think it was almost 2 months. I never told my husband about it coz he'd be really angry. Anyway, I still worked with them and hoped that they'd somehow send my salary. But when they did, they only sent me the amount good for a month's work. I was disappointed. They said, they really no longer have the resources. Then they asked me if I could still work for them to straighten some problems. I wished I could, but if my husband would be seeing me overworked and I am not getting any pay, then, my husband and I will just end up fighting. Anyway, almost 2 years have passed, but I am still in contact with them. I send them greeting cards during their birthdays and holidays.

I wish I totally made a living online. But, until things get better and I invest a little more in some sites that I have found to be legit, I need to work. To tell you the truth, I need to work for about another 6 to 9 months before I can even come close to making $50 per day online. That is my goal, making $50 and above online, per day. Once I can do that, then that is all I will do. I am tired of working for others who are interested in themselves, and dont really care about others. My idea is to help others too, and $50 per day, every day means $350 per week, and $1,400 per month. I can live on $800 per month, and the other I plan on doing things with. I really love service work. Have a great day,

i would love to have an online job that pays that much a month! the only thing i could find are those jobs that take a lot of experience and qualifications that i don't have. this doesn't mean that it still isn't possible, though. i believe if you seek, you shall find.

You are a very passionate person. I am inspired for your efforts in living your life. I work online just in my free time. I have my offline job, and I love it. But I also need to make residual income to add my income. I prefer make money online rather that spending my time with useless things. discussing on Mylot is one of my best ways to enjoy my free time.

thank you so much for your compliment. it gave me the boost of energy that i needed today to do what i do. you are right, though. when you are working online and you enjoy it, it's not work at all.

I don't have an offline job. I do fully work online. I don't earn very much and if it weren't that I was living with someone I wouldn't be able to pay for bills and things I need. I am working toward a monthly income that will be sufficient for these things in the future.

Well, I work online and offline, and work for someone else as well. I do have my Own business and do shows and such but for now, it is not enough to be able to just earn from this. I do have a lot of Health issues as well so for now also need the Medical but hoping to branch out to more my own online/offline business besides being here in myLot as well.
